An interesting introduction, mtoral. Your story has some parallels to the experience of my nephew, which, of course, makes me the enthusiastic uncle. While I have pointed my nephew towards some wines--and have enjoyed his reactions--unfortunately, they have not been 20 year-old classified growth Bordeaux.
Also, unfortunately, I do not have much understanding of what wines are available to you in Singapore. (I live in the U.S.) However, we have had a number of correspondents here on the Forum from Singapore. With luck one of them will jump in here and engage in a dialog with you.
Welcome to the Snooth Forum.

Sounds like birth year bottles. Biggest issue is going to be finding the resources nearby that can deliver legitimate bottles of the wines you are interested in. Singapore is such a trading hub that I think you should be able to find a good source, but caveat emptor is the rule.
You might also want to see if that's a good vintage in the regions you are interested in. ERobertParker doesn't give 1992 very good marks in Bordeaux.
